I booked at The Graduate Athens for my son's wedding there in Athens. I had originally reserved 3 rooms but needed to add a 4th upon arrival. The staff was very helpful, professional and friendly. Still having a small town atmosphere, the staff made us feel at home and personal. The room was updated and very stylish. It's not a sleek high rise hotel but a very comfortable and upscale facility. The reception was held at the Melting Point right there at The Graduate Athens. Again, the staff bent over backwards to help us prepare decorations and have all involved in the reception have what was needed for the big event. I even got to meet UGA Head Football Coach Mark Richt who was there for his own event. We all had a great experience and The Graduate Athens made our stay stress free and very enjoyable.
